Volunteering Project in Jerusalem

  • Tikkun Olam Tourism®
  • A unique volunteer opportunity in Jerusalem for tour groups and families.
  • Pack commodity food staples for families
  • No fee - however donations are always welcome.
Pantry Packers® introduces a bold new concept called Tikkun Olam Tourism® – an exciting 90 minute hands-on opportunity for overseas tourists to pack commodity food staples for Israel’s poorest families. This new venture in tourist volunteerism in Jerusalem offers visiting groups, bar and bat-mitzvah parties, family groups, youth groups etc. the opportunity to make their contribution to Israeli society in a meaningful way. 

At the Pantry Packers® production facility in Jerusalem, tourists aged 8-80 are given a brief orientation session that includes watching a short video, before donning gloves, aprons and caps in order to fill bags of rice, beans and other commodities. These bags, which bear a sticker with the name of the packing group, are later included in large food baskets destined for needy families throughout the country. All the recipient families have been identified by government agencies as needy.
